Benoît Jacques Joseph Gratton (born 28 December 1976 in Montreal, Quebec) is a Canadian professional ice hockey forward currently playing for Jonquière Marquis of the Ligue Nord-Américaine de Hockey (LNAH).

Selected 105th overall by the Washington Capitals in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, Gratton spent several seasons in the Capitals' system before he was traded to the Calgary Flames in 1999. After spending several seasons in the Flames' organization, he was claimed on waivers in 2001 by the Montreal Canadiens. From 2004 to 2014, Gratton played hockey in Europe, most notably playing six seasons with the Vienna Capitals.[1]

After sitting out the 2014–15 season, Gratton made a semi-professional return in the Quebec-based LNAH with Jonquière Marquis.
